For some reason many of us often feel somewhat invincible in a bus, taxi, or other types of public transportation. Lots of people rarely put their seatbelts on for the most part, which must in some way be a signal that they don’t have the same fear as in a regular, passenger car. We’re guilty of it ourselves. But it’s important to remember that injuries from bus accidents in Northern Nevada do happen. These accidents and injuries can be no less severe than accidents in other types of transportation. While there are seemingly few cases of people being injured on public transportation in Reno like this accident, it does most certainly happen. If you’re injured in an accident like that in Northern Nevada, Benson & Bingham Attorneys at Law can help.
There are many different types of public transportation, and many different things that can mean to different people. We use it more often to refer to most paid or mass transit systems, which in Nevada can mean a great many things. A tour bus bringing skiers, gamblers, outdoorsman, or any number of people is a ripe candidate for a bus accident in Northern Nevada because of our road conditions and drivers from out of state not knowing our roads or weather patterns. Even without the weather, people are injured on vacation in Nevada not infrequently because of bus and taxi injury accidents in Washoe County.
